    Weʼve raised £59,270 to Support Aliny’s family and children

    Surrey, UK
    Funded on Sunday, 9th June 2019

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    You may have seen press reports that our dear friend, colleague and mother of four adored children, Aliny was murdered on Friday 8th February in a knife attack in Ewell near to Epsom, Surrey while picking up her children from school.

    Her friends, church community, colleagues and her family in Brazil and other parts of the world are in total shock at the loss of this wonderful person.

    We are raising money for two purposes:

    1. To repatriate Aliny’s body to her family in Brazil.

    2. To pay for a lawyer to work with the family to protect the interests of the children and try and keep them all together as they will have to be fostered or adopted and there is a risk that they will be separated. There is a costly legal process that has to be followed.

    Please can you find it in your hearts to support this very worthy cause and help these poor children who will now grow up without parents and furthermore, to lay Aliny to rest in her home country of Brazil.

      ...Aliny will always be in our thoughts and a part of this community. There are so many words to describe the wonderful person Aliny was but, the hard part is finding the right words to describe her, as words seem so small to do justice to such a special person. She was shy, with a timid smile but full of life, energy, love and charisma. In her own style, and in her loving way, she created many friendships which will last forever...

      ...Aliny had magic hands and cooked like nobody else, we cannot forget her Famous banana FIT cake, because apparently, if you ate it, it kept you FIT. She was a woman who like a child, loved to skip and with her enthusiasm, motivated many others to lead a healthy life. Sometimes you could follow one of her recipes step by step, but it would never taste the same, that's where the secret was, because she put so much love into the recipes that this is what made all the difference...
